Simon and Tanya Bratton discovered by pure chance while holidaying in Whangamata that Z were considering closing their site in the township.
They were immediately excited by the opportunity to bring the strong community focused Challenge brand to Whangamata. Simon has been in love with Whangamata since he was a pre-schooler, firstly enjoying his family holidays, and as time passed taking his own family to enjoy the beautiful beaches, world class fishing & diving, spectacular bush walks and a noticeably strong sense of community. They have decided as a family to relocate to Whangamata and will work on providing Whangamata residents and visitors excellent service along with a more competitive fuel pricing for their customers. Simon and Tanya were able to purchase the site and have plans to further invest in the site to provide customers with all the benefits of a modern fuel and convenience store offer.
“We are looking forward to introducing our very successful My Challenge programme designed specifically to support local community groups and provide even better value for our SuperGold card holders and all loyal customers. We are especially pleased that Challenge can continue to accept Z Biz cards and will also accept and honour the Z Shopper dockets issued from New World. We are all looking forward getting established in Whangamata meeting many new people in the coming months".
